Bolton manager Owen Coyle was full of praise for on-loan winger Ryo Miyaichi after the Japanese teenager starred in a comfortable 2-0 win against Millwall in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

The result at the New Den comes as a welcome respite for Coyle after last weekend's Barclays Premier League defeat to Wigan left them languishing in 19th place and he was quick to single out Miyaichi for individual praise.

"His second-half performance against Wigan last week was terrific, and from that moment there was no doubt he was going to start today," he said. "He showed what a talent he is. There's other stuff he can learn, but he's brave and tough - he stood up to some of the treatment he got today - and he always plays with a smile on his face, which I absolutely love."
